Christopher Hill and I are now endeavouring to update the Press Digest on the Webb site as soon as we have details – approximately monthly – so those with Internet access do not have to wait three months to find out what’s “current”.

Advance notices:

  • Member Roger Stapleton has an article on his layout entitled “LNWR – Steam Shed 1901” in the September edition of Railway Modeller. The layout was shown recently at CreweWorks.
  • Martin Smith promises a bumper LNWR content in the August 2003 issue of Railway Bylines.
